  APRIL 2021      
         

Fri 2nd - Sun 4th - TW - Basket Swamp - through walk is on again this Easter subject to Virus and water levels.  The plan is not to do this with a car shuffle so our exit will be the ridge from Wellington Rock Ck campsite back up to the cars.  As this is not a long walk but very scenic, the plan is to take it very slow with lots of stop and swim breaks.  We will not be rushing.  If you do not like stoppping or having long swim breaks then perhaps this walk is NOT FOR YOU!

Previous through walking experience required.  Numbers will be limited.  See youtube video of a previous trip.  https://youtu.be/__DflRpqemk
